6:01 am
difficult given the large police presence around this building. we counted at least a dozen police vehicles and the medical examiner. this happened around 3:20 this morning. the man was found dead in the lobby. police have not determined or at least not saying what led up to this person's murder. bob redell, "today in the bay." after weeks ever disagreement legal hearings and heartache the family of the girl that was declared brain dead following complications from a tonsillectomy has taken her from children's hospital oakland. christie smith is live at oakland. where did the family of jahi mcmath take her? >> reporter: you know, they are not revealing that but i can tell you that jahi mcmath was quietly removed from oakland's children's hospital 8:00 last night. the family not saying exactly where they were taking her because they say that they received physical threats of violence, even death threats over this. she was moved more than three

weeks after she was first declared brain dead. but the family did release video of the ambulance taking jahi from children's hospital. we're told that her mom went along in the ambulance. jahi was attached to a ventilator fwhout feeding tube. and the coroner released her body to the mom as per a court order. this case has sparked debate. jahi declared brain dead three days after procedures designed to help her breathe. the family rejected that saying that they believe she was alive and could possibly recover. they went to court to force children's hospital to keep her on a ventilator. now that she's moved this is critical for her recovery. >> what this family wanted was a chance, and i think that what's real important to understand is what this legal action was really about was about this girl
6:03 am
jahi but about every parent in the united states who should have the right to make that choice. >> reporter: after she was moved the hospital released a statement saying in part, our hearts go out to the family as they grieve for this sad situation and we wish them closure and peace. jahi's uncle said that the move was paid for with online donations that top $49,000. reporting live in oakland, christie smith. >> the family has not revealed the name of the facility where jahi mcmath is moved to. there is speculation she will be taken in at a facility in long island. visit our website search jahi. >> we're watching the weather this morning as a severe polar vortex provide as dangerous chill from montana to alabama.
